Definitely, PSG cannot do it in the Champions League.
Defeated at home a week ago by the Germans of Flensburg (28-29), and as in February 2018 during their last confrontation, the players of the capital again bowed at the beginning of the evening among the Belarusians of the Meshkov Brest (31-32).
They confirm their complicated start to the season after the painful victory (34-31) in the league against Aix on Sunday.
Raul Gonzalez's players still haven't scored any points in the competition.
The next match against Luc Abalo and Elverum, in two weeks at Coubertin, already sounds like the redemption match.
What you must remember
It starts off pretty well for PSG, with Nedim Remili, Mikkel Hansen, and Dylan Nahi (2-3).
Brest reacts and relies on the paw of Stas Skube, his Slovenian center-half, titled in 2019 with Skopje (7-6).
The champion of France is then regularly left behind and concedes up to five lengths behind (15-10).
A gap that we find at the break (19-14).
Returning from the locker room, the former teammates of William Accambray (who joined Aix this season) keep up the pressure.
Paris comes back a little thanks to Benoît Kounkoud (20-17), then up to his opponent following Hansen's 2,000th goal under the Parisian colors, and the entry into play of Ferran Solé (21-21).
Lots of efforts that leave traces.
Meshkov Brest returns to the assault (26-22).
Paris clings (27-26), the two teams go goal for goal.
Mikkel Hansen's last leap is unnecessary.
The player: Vincent Gérard
His first stoppage of the game on the Belarusian engagement got his teammates up to speed.
The goalkeeper of the France team unfortunately suffered the largesse of his defense (19 goals conceded in the first period).
The Parisian doorman then allowed his people to come back to height.
With 14 saves (30%), Vincent Gérard made his match.
The number: 7
The number of goals scored by Dainis Kristopans.
Arriving from Berlin before the summer, the Latvian giant 2.15 m is the top scorer in the match with Mikita Vailupau the Belarusian.
His double at the very end of the game especially gave hope to his team, but could not prevent a second consecutive loss in the Champions League.
